Leeds Omics Launch was a Huge Success – thank you !

This morning we celebrated the launch of Leeds Omics. We had well over 100 members of the community share in the celebration with us, including our two Deans (as photographed). It was a great opportunity for us to share our vision for Leeds Omics and for us all to get to meet one another and start the development of this hugely energetic research community.

We would like to thank all those members of the community that showed their support and interest in coming along today, and our two Deans for their words of encouragement and support.

We have an exciting and busy time ahead as we begin our various community building activities over the coming weeks and months. We really look forward to meeting you all to discuss research !

The launch will take place in LIDA on level 11 of the Worsley building on Tuesday the 21st of June at 10.00am. Both John Ladbury (Dean of FBS) and Paul Stewart (Dean of FMH) will be saying a few words to celebrate the launch, and we will give a short overview of the vision for Leeds Omics. Please join us for coffee and cake, and a chance to network with other researchers using or interested in using omics data and technologies here at Leeds.
